Waagyu Burger have you had one?

If you are a fan of MasterChef the Professionals then you will be pleased to know that Chef Dean Banks who made it to the finals, not only did he open up his own restaurant Haar back in 2019, but 2020 he opened up Waagyu Burger producing Waagyu burger kits which can be delivered across the UK. The burgers are made from the highest quality Waagyu beef but at an affordable price. The meat is from marbled meat from Japanese cattle, which is considered to be the finest meat in the world.

Courtesy of Waagyu Burger I got a pack to cook and taste myself and I can truly say these burgers are the best meaty burgers I have ever had during lockdown.

Waagyu Burger by Chef Dean Banks

Chef Dean Banks has worked in many top class restaurants and since appearing on MasterChef Professionals he even opened up his own restaurant Haar Restaurant  in 2019 bringing diners a sensory experience like no other. Haar stimulates all your senses as you dine. After launching Haar, Dean quickly became one of Scotland’s leading Chefs. 2020 Dean launched Haar at Home delivering a seafood focused fine dining home experience. All of which the seafood comes from Scotland. Followed shortly on he launched Waagyu Burger delivering DIY burger kits across the UK which are burgers that are made from delicious high quality Waagyu beef but at affordable prices.

Waagyu at home

It took Dean 2 months to develop the perfect burger using the highest quality ingredients possible creating the most luxurious, premium burger to our door steps.

Upon receiving my burger kit I was impressed how well it was packed with all packaging 100% recyclable.

The Signature Waagyu Burger kit includes:

  • 4x Waagyu Burgers
  • 4x Barnets Bakery Sesame Brioche bun
  • 4x Slice Mature Cheddar 
  • 4x Hendersons Butcher Streaky Bacon 
  • Crispy Baby Gem Lettuce 
  • Crispy Onions 
  • Dean’s Waagyu sauce
  • Easy to follow instructions

Cooking at home

All of their burger kits use top quality ingredients from their hand pressed burgers which use prime cuts and steak trimmings, salt & pepper, to bring out the taste of the Waagyu. The cheese is a mature cheddar. The bacon is from award winning Henderson’s butchers. Crispy pieces of onions to give that extra acidity and crunch. Dean’s sauce to give a creaminess to the burger and all which is sandwiched between burger fluffy, fresh buns by Barnetts Bakery

Following the easy instructions provided, within around 15 minutes I soon had a burger on my plate ready to eat. Just precook the patties on the hob first to lightly brown then pop in oven for 10 minutes that simple, followed on by stacking all ingredients within the bun. You can do it either Dean’s way of bun base, sauce, onions, burger patty, cheese, bacon, lettuce and then finally the bun top. However you can do anyway you like.

How would you stack yours?

I don’t know how I got my mouth around it but wow it was packed with flavour. Pleasing all my senses it looked fab, smelt amazing and was ever so flavoursome. The burger patty was meaty, the bacon crisp as well as salty, cheesy, crunchy from the onions plus lettuce, and creamy from the delicious sauce. I just loved how everything worked together beautifully with the cheese melting over the burger and sauce oozing from the burger when squashing down with my hands to eat it. What an explosion!

Apart from Waagyu Burger selling Burger Kits they also sell 71 Brewing Beers and Lager and Cocktails & Spirits which can be enjoyed at home along with your kit.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Having enjoyed quite a few burger kits whilst at home I can highly say this is one of the favourites. Why? as it’s not overly complicated to cook and not too many ingredients making it simpler to cook and stack. However what really stood out to me about the burger in whole was the fresh high quality ingredients and flavour.

So if you are looking for a quick meal, which is meaty but yet fun then I highly recommend a Waagyu Burger kit as it is easy to cook, and you can build up how you like.

Waagyu Burgers happily satisfied me and certainly did awaken all my senses.
